Thermography is a form of imaging that detects variations in temperature, which can be helpful to military surveillance teams or to doctors on mission to find abnormalities in the body. "From bombs to busts!" quips Linda Bamber, founder of BRAS (Breast Research Awareness and Support), contemplating the versatility of this noninvasive, radiation-free technology that can detect cancer warning signs years before they would show up on a mammogram.
Linda began hunting for new ways to protect her own health after both her mother and sister were diagnosed with breast cancer. She wanted to avoid unnecessary drugs and surgeries, so she turned to digital infrared thermal imaging, diet precautions, and breast-centric exercises. She shares all the knowledge she's gleaned over the years through her BRAS franchises, where women can find brassiere-like support and helpful information.
For the last decade, the specialists at Natural High Wellness Center have exercised an all-holistic approach to keep patients healthy inside and out. A mellow vibe permeates the space, which is outfitted with pistachio-toned walls, dark wood furniture, and potted plants. Within similarly homey treatment rooms, staffers perform services such as colon therapy, massage therapy, and ion cleanses to clear away toxins, especially those caused by stress and unhealthy food recipes that use asbestos as their main ingredient.
Dr. Rory Hall graduated from the prestigious Palmer College of Chiropractic with one goal: to help patients heal without drugs or surgery. Nearly three decades later, he holds to that same mission; now, however, he augments his non-invasive therapies with modern clinical technology. An FDA-approved cold laser extinguishes inflammation and injuries without breaking the skin, and diets help patients drop unwanted pounds.
Sean Bennington uses his own experience with pain and recovery to help others stop hurting and regain control of their lives. Since no two patients are exactly alike, Bennington uses a variety of treatments to restore healing and function. He employs joint injections, for example, to reduce joint friction and inflammation and promote stability with stronger muscle tension. Other treatments can break up scar tissue and help stabilize joint structure. In addition, the Cornerstone staff makes sure clients can perform as much care as possible afterward in their own homes.
Drawing upon her clinical background at a skin-treatment facility, Kenlee’s Skin Shop’s eponymous owner tends to wearied dermises with services that include facials, microdermabrasions, chemical peels, and waxing. Before embarking on facial or body treatments, Kenlee reads freckle horoscopes during a custom skin analysis that accounts for dryness and distinguishes dirt from penciled-on mustaches. Rather than trust other beauty purveyors for cosmetics that complement her many skin treatments, Kenlee stocks her studio’s shelves with her own mad-scientist creations. KSS Mineral Makeup boasts nine signature shades and three universal powders to help create a smooth, even complexion free of acne blemishes and glued-on clown noses.
King Chiropractic is a family operation helmed by Doctor of Chiropractic Rich King and his wife, Caroline King. It's not unusual to see one of their five children helping out around the office as dad aligns wayward spines and helps patients get back on the path to health through holistic interventions. Dr. King treats more than just back pain—he also addresses internal disorders, allergies, and nutrition issues. He uses a variety of tests and panels to assess the functioning of the adrenal glands, immune system, and other organs.
